B11 - Shears for harvesting citrus fruits

These shears are specifically designed to reduce possible damage that can occur while harvesting citrus fruits. The cutting blades are curved to prevent pinching and the counter-blade is designed to reduce scrapes and scratches to the skin of the fruit.  The curvature of the handle allows the user to easily reach for the fruit to be harvested.

This particular range of scissors has been specifically designed to reduce the damage caused during picking. Rotten fruit is one of the main causes of economic loss of citrus fruit companies.

The use of conventional picking systems (by hand or with unsuitable scissors) is the cause of the main source of “waste” due to damaged fruits.

The Valencian Institute for Agricultural Research (IVIA) has certified that by using these particular picking scissors it is possible to reduce light damage by 64%, average damage by 33% and serious damage by 50%.

This type of damage, in most cases, is not detected in quality checks and the fruit arrives at the final destination as rotten.
